Nice family photo - good Catholic blog

Thanks to Clare for leaving a comment on a previous post, I have discovered another good blog entitled Battlements of Rubies. Am not quite sure of the significance of the blog title. The author, being Irish, has written a significant appraisal of Pope Benedict's letter to the Irish Church.


  1. Thank you, Father, for the link to this very interesting blog. I'll certainly by looking in from time to time. What lovely family photos too.

  2. *Blushes*
    Thank you very much Father!

    As for the title of the blog, it's from Isaiah chapter 54:

    "12 I will make your battlements of rubies,
    your gates of sparkling jewels,
    and all your walls of precious stones.

    13 All your sons will be taught by the LORD,
    and great will be your children's peace. "

    Back in the day, when I was going to an Evangelical church, it became my scriptural "comfort blanket". I still find it very reassuring to remind myself of the promises in that verse.


Please avoid being 'anonymous' if at all possible.
